We have during the past seven years performed farming of Acheta Domestica (House Cricket) in our old farm in Thailand. The experience and knowhow from that farm has been used to further enhance the farming and processing techniques in our newly built R&D farm where we will even further test new innovations with purpose to be used in the first full scale farm to be constructed in 2019. In the EntoPark we will upscale the production using a technology to be 100% green: it uses rainwater, sunlight, natural air flow, local crickets, small amounts of energy and a minimum of green house gases and ammonia as well as a significant reduction in land and water usage, to make the most nutritious food ingredient available, based on crickets.
The current expansion project in Global Bugs is our EntoPark™, one of the world's first automated insect farms for breeding House Crickets.
The ENTOPARK™ is a solution to the global search for alternative and sustainable proteins which is an issue of major importance that needs viable solutions in the short term, making insects an increasingly attractive feed option to the market.
The ENTOPARK™ will use cost-effective, automated mass-rearing facilities that provide a reliable, stable, protein rich and safe product where we control the whole value chain from farming, production, processing to marketing and sales.
The ENTOPARK™ will at full capacity produce a minimum of 1,200 tons of whole crickets per annum and farm. In case the market demands higher volumes we will build additional farms based on the same EntoPark™ model.
The ENTOPARK™ will be the largest farm in Thailand, constructed on 3 hectare of land producing the highest quality of crickets and cricket products.
